Here’s a list of the films I’m most anticipating for 2016: 1) X Men: Apocalypse, 19th May. “With the emergence of the world’s first mutant, Apocalypse, the X-Men must unite to defeat his extinction level plan.” I’ve loved the new X Men films so far-the plots and casting have been spot on in my opinion. I’m a big fan […]

But here are my favourites: 1) Buffy the Vampire SlayerBuffy was my obsession during high school. It was the show that my sister and I raced home to watch and wouldn’t move or speak to anyone else whilst it was on. […]
